Legendary Singer-Songwriter Leon Russell Featured in "I am Leon" Campaign

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire/ - -Leon Speakers is thrilled to announce its recent collaboration with Leon Russell for their "I am Leon" campaign. Mr. Russell is a world -renowned pioneer in the music industry, and his recent album The Union, co -starring Elton John and T Bone Burnett, is yet another testament to his talent and taste in a long and productive career. The advertisement featuring Leon Russell wraps up a year -long campaign highlighting the many faces of Leon Speakers. From in -house craftsman to outside testimonials, all participants shared a deep passion for their craft and a no -ego attitude. Leon Russell's involvement in this campaign is representative of the company's overall appreciation for quality, creativity and innovation.


"As a pianist and singer -songwriter, I've always had a profound respect for Leon Russell's craft and the sincerity he brings to his music," said Ethan Kaplan, Marketing Director at Leon Speakers. "I was extremely excited to hear the new record, and even more excited to work on this project. I hope he's immensely satisfied with his custom Leon theater, and wish him the best in his future endeavors."

The new album, The Union, is a heartfelt escapade through the two stars' favorite boogie -woogie piano stylings, combining sweeping melodies with classic -rock roots. It serves a healthy blend of blues, country, soul and swing. John reveals in the liner notes that he considered Russell a personal hero, who he approached hoping to bring the groundbreaking musician the attention and honor he deserves. The artists and craftsmen at Leon Speakers agree that Mr. Russell deserves all the best and were proud to offer custom solutions for his home theater system.
